AAA Cards Challenge #122 - Use A Stencil

It's time for a new challenge at AAA Cards today. And the ask for the next fortnight is to use a stencil.

As the sponsor is STAMPlorations I chose one of their stencils to use on my DT card.

The feather stencil is the perfect size for my card and even with the fabulous encouragement quote stamp there is still plenty of empty white space. 

Stamps: STAMPlorations, Noteworthy 2
Inks: Ranger distress, shaded lilac; Memento, tuxedo black; SU, smoky slate
Stencil: ARTplorations, Feathers & arrows

So how will you use a stencil and still keep your card CAS? Well my tips are to choose a stencil that's not too large or intricate or if it's a larger stencil just use part of it or place it going off the edge of your card. And although the 'white space' can be coloured,  patterns, heavily textured or embossing should be kept to an absolute minimum - preferably not used at all!

If you're still unsure about what makes a card CAS hop on over to AAA Cars and see what the rest of the DT have created. Bound to spark your creativity and help you stay CAS.

Thanks so much for looking today, i hope I've helped you on your CAS creative journey.

And keep crafting!
